Football Manager 2017 Tactics - Banshee 4-3-3 Tactic FM17
What makes this formation favourable to me is that it has 4 defenders, 3 central midfielders, which gives great stabilty there and the 3 strikers allow us to score a lot. Banshee works like a 4-1-2-2-1 setup, but with more firepower and it is very easy to build your squad around, since you need nearly the same type of players in each unit and it makes easy to fit the squad selection rules of having 7 subs only (I would prefer 11 to be honest).


General training is Fitness - High in the first 2 weeks of pre-season and then Team Cohesion - High until the end of August, Balanced - Medium afterwards.
Match preparation (bar fully on the left) is Match Tactics until it gets fully fluid, defensive positioning afterwards (set the bar 2 ticks from the left).

Team meetings

You can use these events for 2 reasons: if the team is performing good or bad. Let's consider you are using a good tactic. How to determine if your team is performing good or bad? If you are with Bayern München and other team is leading the league after 10 matches, you are definitely on a bad run or doing something wrong. If you are managing Burnley and you are fighting for the Europa League places then you are doing the right thing. My advice is to hold team meetings once every month and praise or warn them about their form. You can track when the meetings were held by clicking your profile -> My History -> Conversation history.

Praising players

When your player have an average match rating above 7.60 for the last 5 games, you can interact with them and say they recent from is good. Only avoid to praise more then 4 players at the same time (obviously if you are on a winning streak and more then 4 players are red hot, then only praise the best 4) and do not praise the same player in the same month again.

Bad streak - change the training

It is absolutely normal that at some point the results will be worse for some matches and you will see that after a good run you got 2 defeats and 3 draws. Does this mean that the tactic is crap? Definitely not. You have to take care of the situation and my advice is that you should change the match training to teamwork and general training to tactics for 2 weeks then change back the previous setting.

Most important player attributes

Download Player Search Filters

The basic value for the most important player attributes is set to 13, but you should definitely modify it based on the level of the league you are in. If there are too few players matching the filter who are interested in joining your team, you should set the matching rules to 5/7 or 6/8 etc.

I have tested this tactic with Liverpool and Watford to be sure it is working with mid table teams too.
